Sex abuse case against web and broadcast TV exec David Neuman dropped


“Former aspiring model/actor”? That’s depressing.

It seems Mr. Neuman has been quietly dropped from the suit, because Egan said under oath in a related lawsuit more than ten years ago that Neuman and the others never abused him. This undermines the credibility of the accuser. Herman never investigated Egan’s claims before filing these lawsuits. How the hell did he ever pass the Florida bar exam? He should have learned this in his first year of law school. Abuse is obviously a serious allegation and must be vigorously pursued but potentially frivolous allegations aren’t fair. I believe Egan and his attorney will now find themselves, as defendants, in a “malicious prosecution suit” in the near future.

Not only that, it was for the previous lawsuit - 11 years ago - that Egan said that he had never even been to Hawaii. He was asked in a deposition if he had ever taken any trips outside the continental United States. To that question he replied, “Never had any trips outside the continental U.S., no.” Later in the deposition (originally broken by Buzzfeed) Egan responded to a question specifically clarifying that he had never traveled to Hawaii. So he didn’t just misunderstand the question. He directly states that he never went at all to the place where much of the supposed activity occurred. (Some was supposed to have taken place in Encino, CA, but most of it, and the most egregious claims took place in Kailua, HI.)

In the earlier deposition, Egan claimed another boy had been taken to Hawaii.

The new lawsuit makes new claims about Hawaii, and he already denied those claims. So, with the new claims in a new deposition, he has lied under oath.

Back in April, Singer’s lawyer provided credit card receipts, telephone records and production schedules to confirm that he couldn’t have been in Hawaii at the time that the abuse was occurring.
